Summary:Miniature speedway enjoyed brief popularity during the 1960's in the USA and Australia. One of its attractions was the danger associated with it and the prospects of spectacular crashes. Here at the Westhead speedway in Sydney in May 1965, the spectators witnessed a crash which killed Australia's leading speedway driver, Jeff Freeman. It was ten minutes before he could be recovered from the wreckage and he died on the way to hospital.
